The Philippines is arguably rising in the fashion scene abroad and these Filipinas have shown that innovation in the country's style scene is very much alive and well.
From the runway, shoots, and events, the country's style icons Patricia Santos, Boom Sasson, and Hannah Locsin show us how they worked their way to fame.
Making the best out of minimal resources, Patricia Santos started out with what she termed "young and girly" patterns.
She was a one-woman team—from designing, cutting, and seaming when she was an up and coming designer. Now, she is now known for feminine, intricate, and elegant gowns.
She now has her own line of ready-to-wear (RTW) gowns, which are designed with detailed embroidery, beads, and crystals to make each and every item stand out.
Her creations were worn by the most sought-after celebrities during this year's ABS-CBN Ball, past Mr. And Ms. Chinatown pageants, and various photo shoots and fashion shows.
Boom Sason studied design, film, and marketing in different parts of the world before she launched her own line here in the country. This explains why her designs are a bit edgy compared with the usual sets that are off the rack.
She reinvented sexy by understanding the curves of the woman's body. Her line includes tops and dresses, but she is well-loved by celebrities for her custom-made swimsuits. Sason has a website with a wide collection of RTW bikinis and maillots for different body types.
Her bold designs have allowed her to swiftly gain success in the fashion industry.
This rising Filipina model seems to know how to balance her time from one commitment to another. Hannah Locsin is beauty and brains, and is now making her way to the New York fashion scene.
Since her first modeling gigs when she was in high school, she has gone on to grace runways, magazines, and photo shoots in the Philippines and around the world.
Recognizing the value of education, she made it a point to finish her studies, earning a degree in Communication. She was a consistent dean’s lister and made her own name working with the industry's best names.
As Patricia, Boom and Hannah continue to set fire in the fashion industry, they've also managed to inspire Filipinas to not strive for less. Which is why, they have been recognized as part of Cream silk's 100 ultimate women—where women from different fields are celebrated for their talent, success, and constant drive for greatness. Anchoring on the brand's advocacy on women empowerment, this remarkable roster of women include esteemed individuals who have proved that they are at the top of their game.
